All Over the News is an interactive installation that helps to critically examine the news we are presented with. When reading a questionable news article the audience can use this decision making tree to decide whether they trust the news or not. Through a touchscreen they work through a 30 step program to shape their personal opinion about the article. In doing so, it emphasises the fact that a critical attitude is imperative amongst news readers in a saturated online context in which borders between different types of information are fading. Besides, it encourages the viewer to form their own stance with regards to the trustworthiness of news.
